A successful catamaran charter in Dubrovnik requires a great skipper on your boat and ideal weather – thankfully, you can sail through stunning Dubrovnik city with sunglasses on! While it is always important to get the details of the weather before your yacht leaves the marina, you can count on temperatures in Croatia to average around 28°C during the day meaning a swim in the lagoon is on the to-do list! Exploring the old town is also perfect in this glorious sunshine, with many of Dubrovnik’s iconic attractions being open all year round. Planning your yacht charter in the shoulder seasons of April and October is recommended for those who do not want to be met with large crowds in ACI Marina Dubrovnik, or ACI Marina Komolac. Many of the boats and catamarans available also have fans in the cabins, which is a welcome relief as you rest in the berths of Croatia’s best marinas after a busy day of sailing.
Skippers will know where best to sail during your week catamaran charter in Dubrovnik, and there are some exquisite stretches of Croatia coastline to choose from: Copacabana Beach: Crytal-clear waters, pebble-lined beaches… this is an ideal day trip for families with young children. This popular beach is frequented by residents of Dubrovnik throughout the year, with many boats choosing to sail here thanks to the lush scenery. Mlini Beach: If you have a crewed yacht charter, this may be one place they recommend you sail your yacht charter to during your week of sailing. Thanks to the sandy beach, this oasis is a haven to which you can escape, either via a short sail on your boat charter, or indeed a quick taxi ride away should you wish to leave your catamaran in the marina berths. Sveti Jakov Beach : Not far from the old town of Dubrovnik, this is a favourite of locals and indeed people from all over Croatia including Split! It is easy to see why – a descent of 160 steps is a small price to pay for a stunning view, but a better option may be to sail your catamaran charter to this paradise so you can have instant access to this idyllic sailing spot.
Of course, many who choose Dubrovnik as their yacht rental and sailing destination strive to spend their day discovering the secrets of the old town of Croatia, analysing the intricate details of the architecture, and observing the gorgeous rooftops which are visible from all marinas. Fans of the iconic hit TV Show Game of Thrones will, of course, instantly recognise the streets, and may spend their week with their catamaran charter in ACI Marina Dubrovnik while they recreate their favourite scenes!
Although a big city, everything is within walking or sailing distance, or a minute taxi ride at a low price should get you to some popular places just outside the city.

Highlights include Lovrijenac Fort which is perched dramatically overlooking the boats of the marina at 37 metres above sea level.
